So much is happening in the art world and SO much more in my own little hemisphere. Firstly, are you watching "Work of Art"? I really hope you are, cause that show is making me a little crazy. Last seasons artist were FIERCE, I must admit. They totally challenged my own creative concepts and commitment. There were pieces I absolutely loved and pieces I vehemently hated, but never have I ever questioned an artist work until season 2 of that show. This years group? They totally suck (well not all, but most of them do). That guy "SuckLord"...geez. And the one guy or gal who wanted to make 'piss art'??? Shock art is not SHOCKING it's just filthy. I find myself yelling at my TV and criticizing their work every Wednesday night, while my 7 month old, sitting next to me, giggles at mommy's hissy fits.
Hey, I'm passionate about art. And it is with that same PASSION that I've decided to put my butt back in school so that I can: A. actually get a degree and make my mom proud (may she rest in peace), and B. be able to stick my nose in the air and call myself a professional artist instead of an amateur-self-taught-since-childhood artist. I have about 1.5 years to go ( I hope) but I'm ready to argue with my art instructor and be up way late at night for more than just diaper duty.
